of this horror. >> the superintendent then read a letter written to nancy pelosi. >> i would just like to share with you as one final thought a fourth grade student, congresswoman nancy pelosi sent you a letter, and her name is ava. she says i am a fourth grade student in newtown, connecticut. after the shooting in my town i sent a letter to the president asking for help from congress to change the gun laws. it got a lot of support from americans, but then i had to take it down because of my same. what everybody wants you to do is ban the high capacity magazines and for everyone to use guns safely. >> joining me now for an exclusive interview, newtown superintendent, dr. janet r robinson. thank you for joining us. >> nice to see you, lawrence. >> ava's note said what everybody in newtown wants is for you to ban semiautomatic weapons, and i'm sorry to say that is not apparently what everyone in newtown wants. we were just talking in the last segment about patricia clark, who is a high-ranking nra official who lives in newtown. and as i think you know, newtown in the past has had a fairly large c
if it had been nancy pelosi re-emerging as the speaker of the house and if democrat governors had won in the numbers that they needed to win in as well as legislative bodies being dominated by democrats. i think the cult of the personality had a lot more to do with the end results this time around. in addition thereto, the defective candidacy of the republican nominee. after all, he was a legitimate burden for that party. >> the republicans were the best friend of the democrats because of that whole primary process. those debates i think had a collective effect that was all to the benefit of president obama in the end. >> you had one rational guy, jon huntsman, come out, and they all pounded on him. >> who didn't act as rationally as he is. remember the old ten for one, he was one of the hands that went into the air. >> he tried a little bit until south carolina. it wasn't just the debate. the pathologies of the debate played out through the campaign. so you had senate seats in missouri and indiana that fell to the democrats in part because of republican flubs. we have to go to that c

the fiscal cliff, going to the table and negotiating, not only did he push nancy pelosi still on taxes, he also dider skin bowls. >> arthel: do you think that speaker boehner can get his caucus to work together moving forward for the next four years? >> arthel, it's going to be very difficult but i think he can, but we do have a republican party that is divided. they have a lot of work to do. we have a tea party on principle and they need to work together to get what they need to get. the bottom line is this, if they don't work together then we'll be the same mess for another four years. >> arthel: let's hope not. angela, good to see you, julie, thank you as well for your outlook on this. >> eric: now for a look beyond the news for a continuing issue that divided our country for decades. here a liz with commentary. >> 40th anniversary of the roe versus wade division by the u.s. supreme court for the feminist left in 1973 was a crowning achievement. abortion was here to stay enshrined as a nation's law. you can sure that aging saints will be available for interviews when the media that love
are at stake. we're responsible. >> john: later in the day house minority nancy pelosi responded that congress must do its part without further delay. we can work together to insure that this time it will, indeed be different. house speaker boehner quote house economies of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if senate passes a bill, we'll also take a look at that, turning it over as if it's infectious. as for the national rifle association, it accused the president of missing the point of the newtown tragedy saying attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. here's what happens the president offers 23 proposals and a series of gun control laws without taking anyone's guns away while pushing for memory healthcare proving the nra my friends, can't take yes for an answer. the nra ad which attacked the president for putting his daughters above everyone else's children. >> are the president's kids more imp
minority leader, nancy pelosi. close at his heels is chuck schumer, something you will all throughout the day. there's a lot of talk in washington about how republicans don't want to be here or how this is not a republican event, this is a democratic event. it is not like that. this formally -- there's former president bill clinton and secretary of state, hillary clinton, there. this is about governance and the presidency. this is not about who won the election, except in the technical sense. this is pomp and circumstance that should be everybody involved in governance as signified in a visible way by the presence of supreme court justices. supreme court justices do not avail themselves of political environments unless they are behaving in a way unbecoming or for justice. to have them there today is a reminder of the power of the united states. >> there are two people that have been fantastic for the country and barack obama. secretary of state, hillary clinton, and of course, bill clinton, former president. he was hired to work re-election for barack obama. >> former president carter

the majority and have nancy pelosi write that bill. there are no other choices. these numbers are changing, just like the demographics are changing. you know, mitt romney got the same percentage of white voters that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress,

democratic leader nancy pelosi. >> michael beschloss, a little different in mood from the folks who are already outside to the president and his party moving through the hallway. half of them look like they're headed for an execution. >> i think that's right. and maybe not very rationale now. four years ago, maybe because barack obama came with problems coming from almost every direction. now at least he's in a situation where he can give a speech to give a little bit more of what he would like to do rather than how he's going to respond to things that have been thrown in his lap. >> sergeant of arms broke it up a little bit by saying something to the president that got a smile out of him. but everyone is remarking the same things, david, today. the president's older and grayer. daughters have grown up. we've all changes. four years at that. look at that crowd. >> i was thinking about this. we're not the own ones glued to our screens here. the president is walking tighter and straighter, shoulders up, understanding the ceremony has a purpose because the whole world is watching our t
? it was nancy pelosi and chuck schumer who said they believe taxes on the rich should go up. more taxes on the wealthy and the rich should just get over it. what do you make of that tone? >> i think you are absolutely right about that. the issue of income inequality. he said very clearly last week that he expects to see a balanced approach towards deficit reduction going forward. that includes more revenues. we presume that means more tax revenues from wealthier families, wealthier americans. neil: all right. this is probably one of those shots that you will not see too often. beyoncÉ and paul ryan. we will just leave it at that. just maybe one of those that i am the only one on the planet that makes a big deal about this. all right, going into the hall. the vice president and the president. they have a new lease on life. which at thing, what can we make of that term but we just got word from mitch o'connell that we plan to work with the president and trust he will work with us. >> the problem is you have two very different problems. there are still about $1.2 trillion left in tax reve

'm not sure that's right. i think a lot of people are on the left, including nancy pelosi who are wanting-- or invoking the 14th amendment and they're looking at cues he might do that. and i think the cues saying he won't are stronger, jay carney said from the podium, the 14th moment saying it won't work. >> megyn: and telling our viewers, that the democrats, some believe that's a unilateral way that the president could bypass authority that is clearly with the congress, the congress is the only one allowed to raise the debt limit and the president could have some constitutional requirement to do it. >> you're he the lawyer, but my reading of the 14th amendment is that congress shall do this. >> megyn: even the president said i talked to my lawyers about that one and they didn't think it was a good idea. >> right, the president can't violate one constitutional stricture in order to enforce another. i think it's sort of a nonstarter. and what obama is essentially doing, saying it's outrageous for the republicans to have any demands whatsoever and so obama is saying, my only demand is that
and paid for. >> stephanie: that's right. nancy pelosi comments on the nra's ad. >> it was completely inappropriate to bring in the president's children. they have protection because of national security, and it's really inappropriate. >> stephanie: that every president has had. >> and is required. he can't turn it down. >> stephanie: right. representative george miller. >> we'll dealing with people who aren't terribly stable and that kind of ad -- i think is dangerous. >> stephanie: yeah, and representative rush holt. >> it was -- irresponsible and, you know, this is not your grandfather's nra. >> stephanie: yeah, really. it's like they are going out of their way to inflame the situation with these stupid ads. >> president obama and his family live in the house with. that's not fair. >> it's not fair. >> shouldn't we all live in the white house? >> thank you! >> isn't he a big hypocrite pooppy head because we didn't live there too. this message paid for by the large incontinents that run the nra. it is right that president obama has his own airplane and we don't. >>
nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5
elections elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we have a lot ahead. don't forget to share your photos of today's inauguration. you can find us on twitter. send us everything. we want to see it. still ahead this morning, live from the dubliner retired general colin powell valerie jarrett, nbc's tom brokaw "hardball's" chris matthews and presidential historian doris kerns goodwin. >>> up next, the political playbook -- oh my gosh, the line. the political playbook with jim. first, bill karins is here with a check on the forecast. bill. >> mika this crowd, once again, you won't believe how long this line is. so many wonderful people out here. you came all the way from the bahamas, and you did it four years ago too. >> i did it four years ago. >> very impressive. from virginia maryland. you two both work in the navy. you're from? >> california. >> and you're from? >> ohio. i worked on the campaign. >> both times or just the last year? >> just this last year. >> good job. i think it worked. >> a little bit. >>
